SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- February 11, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced it will demonstrate its
innovative 4G test solutions at the Mobile World Congress, Feb. 25-28, in
Barcelona (Fira Gran Via, Booth 6D60, Hall 6).

“Agilent’s powerful wireless solutions help engineers gain greater insight,
acquire increased confidence in their measurement results and overcome test
challenges from product development to manufacturing and deployment,” said
Benoit Neel, Agilent vice president and general manager of field operations
for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “We really want attendees to take
advantage of the expert resources we’ll have at the show to help them better
understand the intricacies of continuously evolving wireless standards and get
their products to market faster.”

Agilent will demonstrate:

New high-coverage, small-footprint LTE conformance solution: Agilent’s new
T4000S series LTE conformance test systems, with inter- and intra-band carrier
aggregation, provide leading LTE conformance coverage in an architecture that
scales from bench-top to full rack configurations with the smallest footprint
in the industry. The T4000S Systems provide extensive test coverage for RCT,
PCT and RRM, and validation by GCF and PTCRB for both FDD and TDD
technologies.  Agilent’s latest additions to its conformance systems portfolio
also include the T3100S series NFC/RFID and T1000S series Bluetooth®
Conformance Test Systems.

Extensive 2G/3G/LTE RF and functional test solutions: The latest capabilities
on the Agilent 8960 and PXT wireless communications test sets  include
dual-band DC-HSDPA, HSPA+ MIMO, TD technologies, the latest VoLTE solutions
and full 2G/3G/LTE handovers.

Fast manufacturing tests solutions for wireless devices: Key elements of
Agilent’s high-throughput manufacturing test solutions include an advanced
sequence analyzer working in synchronization with new wireless chipset test
modes and cost-effective multi-port capability enabling maximum throughput
with minimal capital investment.

New software solutions for greater insight into LTE-Advanced physical layer:
Agilent experts will show how easy and flexible LTE-Advanced signal generation
is using Signal Studio software. They will also demonstrate in-depth
LTE-Advanced analysis troubleshooting with 89600 Vector Signal Analyzer
software, and one-button multi-standard radio (MSR) compliance testing
application.

The new FieldFox handheld analyzer family: Designed to meet the needs of
installation and maintenance technicians, and withstand the toughest working
conditions, FieldFox analyzers enable users to boost productivity of on-site
measurements and lower operating costs by combining up to 10 instruments in
one. These handheld analyzers weigh just 3 kilograms and are flexible enough
to meet the needs of novices and experts alike for precision wherever they go.

At the show, copies will be available of Agilent’s new “LTE and the Evolution
to 4G Wireless Design and Measurement Challenges, Second Edition,” which
includes over 40 authors and 648 pages. This edition is updated with the
latest 3GPP standards, including LTE-Advanced and follow-on releases, and has
more detail on physical and upper layers, MIMO and advanced receiver testing,
functional and conformance testing and non-signaling manufacturing.
